My week in pictures #183

Sunday, August 14

(From top left) I made s'mores cupcakes from Tanya Bakes on Monday - they were very yummy! Tea on Wednesday was Mexican Tomato Jumble with Spiced Citrus Chicken from HelloFresh. Helping mum is the garden and we got to burn lots of sticks on the fire too. After many nights of work I've finally finished my Orlando Holiday scrapbook. Breakfast in the greenhouse on Saturday morning. Camping essentials and a couple of treats from the Accessories sale while shopping on Saturday.
I can't believe how quickly the holiday as passing and this week was no exception. I've not done a lot this week though just planning for the rest of the holidays. 

On Monday I got together the things I needed to make s'mores cupcakes. In the end I decided not to add the marshmallow topping but they were still delicious. I couldn't recommend Tanya Bakes anymore really. I got up on Wednesday and helped mum clear more sticks in the garden. It is more fun when you get to put the smaller ones on the fire. 

Later than evening, once I'd had a shower to get rid of the smoke, I went to meet Scott. We cooked a delicious mexican dish for tea and watched Masterchef until bedtime. Thursday and Friday were pretty quiet at home. I took the dogs for a walk on Friday evening while mum and dad were out. 

On Friday, however, I got some less than great news. Scott has had to go to Azerbaijan last minute for work so it will be over a week until I next see him. I always worried for him when he flies to that part of the world. He also had to wait in the airport for hours today - I really feel bad for him.

I was excited for Saturday though because mum and I went on our first girly shopping day in ages. I had to buy my flatmate a birthday present so it seemed like the perfect excuse. I don't have much money at the moment though so I had to be good. Tiger sadly didn't have any of the things I put in Wednesdays wishlist. I did get a couple of things in the accessorize sale and a pair of sandals for camping. Please with what I bought my flatmate for her birthday too.

Without my boyfriend at the weekend I've felt pretty lost and not sure what to do on my own. Sunday had been a lazy day, I've made a checklist for camping and looked at more restaurants in Newcastle. 

Needless to say I've watched ALOT of the olympics this week. The track cycling is definitely my favourite but I also enjoy the swimming, gymnastics and diving. I'll pretty much watch whatever is on and that is what I'll just keep doing for the rest of Sunday. 

On Saturday I played around with Instagram stories - do you think I should use it more? You can follow me @ginger_claire.

This week on G is for Gingers: Wednesday 'Wishes and Wants' (The Homeware Edit)
